  15. Anodised Finishes – 15.   Anodising has many significant technical problems associated with trying to achieve perfect colour, lustre and hue across batches of parts. Many factors influence the colour including alloy type, age and condition, surface finish, coating thickness, tank chemistry, jig positioning, shape geometry and also handling processes meaning that variations are inevitable. Due to the many variables that can determine final colour, lustre and hue and the fact that many of these are beyond our control Channelglaze CANNOT and DO NOT guarantee appearance as defined by colour, lustre and hue and therefore cannot guarantee perfect colour, lustre and hue across all parts that make up our products. As a consequence Channelglaze are not able to off a perfect colour matching service for anodised coatings. Whilst we will try to ensure consistency across our parts with minimal variation we cannot guarantee this especially where strict deadlines are in place. We would therefore recommend our powder coated range for customers looking for a consistent colour across all parts.
